Who would have thought John John Florence would take out the Volcom Pipe pro again?
Well, I would say nearly every spectator on the beach and even quite a few surfers in the contest itself had their money on the guy as he dominated heat after heat before taking out the likes of Kelly Slater and Mason Ho in the final.
After the Vans Triple crown and World title were all wrapped, the North Shore is a great place to watch the true Hawaiian locals charge their favorite waves usually only meters away from their bedroom windows.
Sit back and watch John John Florence and Jamie O’Brien duke it out as the Banzai Pipeline turns it on for some late season madness.
